What should I do? My home has been damaged!
What steps should I take immediately after storm damage?
Take Safety Precautions for yourself above all..
If needed, arrange for an alternative place for you and your family to live while your property is being restored to safe living condition.
Heavy winds and rain can create physical hazards such as collapsed roofing materials, window damage, collapsed walls or standing water in the basement or home interior.
Shut off the main gas line if you smell gas!
Do not step in standing water without first making sure power is turned off to avoid risk of electrocution.
Beware of broken glass, exposed nails, and other sharp objects on the property.
Contact SERVPRO of Lebanon/Hanover/Littleton to help do basic tasks to help secure your property and make it safe to use.
Photograph and Document the Damage
- If it is safe to move around your property, use your cellphone or a camera to photograph the damage so that you will have a record for your insurance company. This action will ensure that you are fully compensated.
Contact Your Homeowners Insurance Agency immediately.
- Contact your insurance agent to notify them about the damage to your home immediately. The company will send out an adjuster to determine the extent of the damage so that payment for repairs can be made.
